# calculation not working

## Question

i have a calculated field like this

case
when [@field:follow_checkbox] = 1 and [@field:when_to_follow]  !=(SELECT CONVERT(VARCHAR, CONVERT(DATE, GETDATE() AT TIME ZONE 'UTC' AT TIME ZONE 'Egypt Standard Time'), 103) AS [Date_Result])
then " yes"
else " no "
end

it supposed that if a checkbox is checked and another field date is not equal  todays date ( in format 103 )  it shows yes else no

but for some reason the calculation doesnt work and it shows no all the time

Hi @DRAhmed- as I understand, your condition will be, if the checkbox is checked AND the field date IS NOT EQUAL to todays date in 103 format, it should return yes otherwise no.

can you try this formula?

```CASE WHEN [@field:Send_Email] = 1 AND CONVERT(VARCHAR,[@field:Date_],103) != CONVERT(VARCHAR,SysUTCDateTime(),103)
THEN 'Yes'
ELSE 'No'
END```

Hello,

Thank you for the question and solution!

Just to add, the following article lists all available functions that you can use for your Calculated Field and please note that some functions such as SysUTCDateTime() are not available in the Table level's Formula Field: https://howto.caspio.com/function-reference/#:~:text=Date-,SysUTCDateTime(),-Current system timestamp
